Hello All!

The html pages which are available at http://s.guillard.free.fr/alc4/index.html are just an introduction slideshow that I presented as a starter, it does not relate what I shown and said afterwards. Please find below a couple of notes about my presentation at Alchimie show.

Less than 4 seconds for a warm reboot?

That sounds very good.

With regards to DMA - what a weird bug. The solution to use the UDMA card sounds fine. $20 for a faster IDE connection anyway is good enough for me. When newer versions of the hardware appear I expect that this problem will be fixed.

So

1. DMA works as expected
2. Cockup on mobo that causes conflict between ethernet and ide controller onboard

OK, anyone sending patches abroad? Patch easy to do?

I'm looking up prices for this PCI IDE card and I'm not too worried about how much it costs... but I'm wondering how you go about installing it? Just stick the card in the machine, and UBOOT will use the new IDE controller straight away or is there a new driver or ide.device or what?

@ Orgin & tomazkid

While the image here seem to be of the ATA66 controller, the ATA133 controller does use the "Silicon Image 0680 ATA Controller Chip", so it should be a compatible card @ komplett for 295 SEK...

edit: Dataparadiset has the same card for 271 SEK here (with the same picture as komplett has, so I guess one better ask them first before buying it to make sure it has the correct controller). They also have the EIO card which Bobsonsirjonny has to offer here (595 SEK).

Please tell if you find it anywhere in Sweden!

Maybe Gurumeditation and/or GGS-Data could import and sell them (I don't want warranty issues with other countries, the cost to send hardware is too high) if there is noone else in Sweden?

** Edit: AmiDog allready found it! Yippie! =)

@Amidog
Nice! Then I hope they still sells them when we get the update with the UDMA drivers!
(or there is a software fix for the AOne so we don't need them at all!)

Hold on everyone. Nobody said you will be able to use a SIL0680 based card with the soon to be released update of OS4.
Ok ? So there's no rush. Stay calm

So, basically, we will not get IDE DMA with the update (my A1 is online 100% of the time it is on)?

I understood it the same way, if the A1 is equipped with the VIA.

*edit* Similar to the way Linux disables DMA due to dma-timeouts, I recon?

The problem (is it a problem?) here is that we don't know when we get the UDMA enabled OS4 and the drivers for this PCI card (maybe the driver is allready in OS4 pre?).
It *could* take years (I guess it will be sooner, but who knows?).
